Our Work

Gathering Storm

As Earth’s climate changes and storms grow more intense with every season, this global series offers a significant new perspective on the world’s biggest storms.

Hundreds of cameras are given to people who work at sea wherever maritime traffic intersects the path of monster storms, from the Gulf of Mexico to the South China Sea and Bermuda to Philippines. For an entire year, on cargo carriers, oil platforms, fishing boats and warships, they film the inside story of what happens when major storms threaten. Each episode unfolds as a blow by blow drama, as forecasters race to predict the storm’s next move and workers battle to get the job done and to get home safe. At stake is the job, their cargo, their equipment and their lives.

Filming in the USA and around the world, the series is made with extensive access to hundreds of major shipping operators, ports, fishing vessels and oil companies as well as United States Navy, Royal Canadian Navy and NOAA (America’s national weather agency).

A 6-part series for National Geographic.

Starting Mon June 22, National Geographic UK
